Sender email address

The Sender email address indicates who is the sender of the received emails.

The default Sender email address is [email protected].

You can adapt your Sender email address upon request.

Customize email templates

You can customize the default email templates to match your business needs. Email templates are customized in your Identity Cloud instance upon request.

To customize your email templates:

  1. Go to Signup/Login > Email templates.
  2. Click Go to customization form.
  3. Fill out the form by providing the required inputs.
info

To adapt the Sender email address to your custom domain you need access to your domain's DNS. To allow Identity Cloud to send digitally-signed emails on your behalf, you need to add some DNS records. Without these records, the emails may end up in your users' spam mail folders.

To learn more, read about Sender Policy Framework (SPF) and DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM).

info

You can customize the email template texts in two different modes:

  1. Standard: The texts of the default Email templates are used. You can only customize the [Brand name] placeholders to be replaced by your brand name.
  2. Custom: You can write new email templates in all four languages from scratch to meet your business needs.
